Sulfuric acid is one of the most important elementary substances of the chemical industry. There is no stainless steel or even a nickel base alloy available which is suitable over the entire concentration range. This paper will give corrosion data in up to 75 % sulfuric acid at boiling temperature for various commercial grades as well as for some new developmental alloys.
Sulfuric and hydrochloric acids are among the most common chemicals produced.in the process industry. Nickel alloys have been a traditional material of choice. This paper will review the alloys available for this service as well as identify the temperature limits and other conditions that should be considered when selecting an alloy.
This book provides data on the corrosion rate of carbon steels and cast irons in concentrated sulfuric acid as well as information on the construction and use of a rotating cylinder apparatus. It reports on a study to assess the use of a rotating cylinder electrode to measure corrosion in a mass transfer controlled system under controlled, properly defined hydrodynamic conditions.
